Drones

I think the future of American and Canadian aggressive warfare will go to the drone.

  1. The pilot is completely safe, sitting in a bunker on the other side of the world.
  2. The plane is cheaper to build.
  3. The plane can accelerate faster than a human can withstand.
  4. Fat couch potatoes can pilot them.
  5. Being smaller, the plane can be quieter and harder to detect. They can be made in a wide variety of sizes.
  6. They can more precisely pinpoint the precise victim or family. They can be thought of as assassination weapons.
  7. They terrorise the population, much the way Nazi buzz bombs terrorised London in WWII (World War II).

I think the future of warfare against America and Canada will use terrorism.

  1. There is no simple target to retaliate against.
  2. It can strike anywhere at any time.
  3. It costs almost nothing for the attacker and is cripplingly expensive to defend against.
